High-performance Monarflex Monarsound Acoustic Scaffold Sheeting from Icopal has been specified during the demolition and preparatory work on the prestigious K1 Knightsbridge development in South West London.
The sheeting, which was used by specialist contractor Keltbray Demolition and Civil Engineering for the 28,000m2 Knightsbridge development, minimised disruption to the public by reducing noise and containing dust and particles, as well as ensuring a controlled environment for the team on-site.
In consultation with BLC Construction Supplies, the Keltbray team selected Monarflex Monarsound Acoustic Sheeting for its excellent sound-reducing properties provided by specially formulated Polyurethane foam. The sheet’s five-ply composition also incorporates a weather-resistant low-density polyethylene (LDPE) co-polymer to ensure the highest level of durability required to withstand changing weather conditions for the full 50-week demolition programme.
With the 150-week construction programme scheduled to immediately follow the demolition work, avoiding delays is essential. The additional thermal and weather protection benefits of the sheeting will ensure that the on-site team can continue to work in all weather conditions.
